Wow, what a lovely setting to treat sick koalas. We had the luck to meet a very naugthy koala who jumped from one pen to another as a means of trying to escape. This provided some hilaric entertainment for my two teens. There is no entry fee however, a donation is a must for the work what they do.

This place is a fantastic refuge for sick and injured koalas and is the best place they could possibly be if they need help. The volunteers deserve 5 stars. Their care and compassion for the koala is outstanding. The yards that the koalas are held in are great for koalas with the tall eucalyptus species being apparent throughout. There were... More

We visited here with our young son and we thought it was fantastic. You can see through the windows at the hospital. When we visited they were putting drops in the koalas eyes. A great opportunity to see things. We had a wander through the outdoor space set up for the koalas and you can read more about each of... More

This is definitely worth a visit. Tours are run by volunteers who are engaging and happy to answer your questions. Beautiful surrounds and an amazing cause. There is no charge for the tours but as they run on donations we donated $5 per person. Kids loved it and were hard to get away.

It was great to see Koalas so close. But it was a place, where they were treated properly like wild animals should be treated, just getting the medical support they need. You are not allowed to touch them, so they are not being exploited for profit reasons. We loved our guide too. It is nice to see people volunteering for... More

The Koala Hospital is a wonderful place to see Koala's getting a second chance. Please donate before you leave. It's worth it!
